Adam Smith in and Fleeming Jenkin in believed unions did raise wages, but Milton Friedman in thought they had little effect, because they could not affect the supply of labor. While unions ensure higher wages and an increased level of job security for their members, they also bring about many unintended adverse effects for the economy as a whole. The existence and growth of unions can contribute to increased unemployment levels, higher levels of racial disparity in income and reduced industry growth.
